German inheritance law, which is essentially regulated in the fifth and last book of the German Civil Code (sec. 1922 to 2385 BGB), is a very extensive area of law. For a layperson, the inheritance law regulations and constellations are hardly comprehensible. For this reason, qualified advice from an attorney experienced in inheritance law is necessary in order to appropriately deal with inheritance matters. Thanks to our intersectional areas of practice, our law firm in Düsseldorf develops individual solutions to legal, tax and financial issues. As a result, our clients can benefit from extensive advice on inheritance law.

Our inheritance law advice is not only relevant in the event of a loss in the family, but already within the lifetime of the testator. Accordingly, we advise you on the different types of last wills/testaments. In addition, we also draft contracts of inheritance and other dispositions, for example in the case of a legacy.

Family law in Dusseldorf

Family law disputes are often very emotional – either at the beginning of a relationship or in the case of divorce.  Hence, a family law attorney must be particularly aware of the personal situation of the clients involved. In order to prevent existential fears in the event of separation or concerns about the right of contact with one's own children, those affected should seek advice from an expert in family law at an early stage.

As family law attorneys, we offer you competent advice on all family law issues. This includes issues such as divorce, alimony, rights of contact and custody or pension rights settlements. Our office in Düsseldorf also provides you with competent assistance in drafting marriage contracts and in handling amicable separations.

Labour law in Düsseldorf

Labour law is divided into individual labour law and collective labour law. Individual labour law regulates the legal relationships and legal disputes between individual employees and employers. This includes, for example, employment contract law, working time law, maternity protection law, holiday law and employment protection law. In contrast, collective labour law refers to the legal relationships between employers, employers' associations and unions as well as between employers and works councils. Collective labour law includes works constitution law, collective bargaining law and the law on industrial disputes.

In the legal field of tenancy law (residential tenancy law and commercial tenancy law) your attorney deals with the clarification of legal problems within the rental relationship. These include, for example, termination, notification for personal use, obligation to carry out aesthetic repairs, claims for damages in the event of terminated tenancies and legal disputes regarding ancillary rental costs.

Since tenancy law comprises very complex regulations, it is necessary to consult and, if necessary, be represented by an attorney for tenancy law if you want to know and enforce your rights as a tenant in a lawsuit.

Our attorneys in Düsseldorf have been active in litigation in the area of tenancy law for many years. They are therefore able to respond to the needs and wishes of each client with a great degree of experience. Legal proceedings don't always have to result in a verdict.
